New HUD Policy: Applications to Associations for Service & Support Animals

In January 2020, HUD issued a new statement of policy regarding applications to associations for service and emotional support animals.
This new policy states that use of a mandatory form, as well as a requirement that the physician (or other health care professional) attest to the disability and the necessity of the animal under penalty of perjury are condemned by this new policy.
PLEASE NOTE that both of these items were previously included in our Senior Resource Manual (Appendix K). Therefore, if you have a copy of our Senior Resource Manual (or have a copy of this form as a standalone document), it is important to discontinue to use this form immediately and contact us for more information.
If you have a reasonable accommodation or modification policy, we suggest contacting us or your current legal counsel to review it for consistency with current law.
